Wellbeing SA is partnering with the City of Playford and Naracoorte Lucindale Council to co-invest in local Wellbeing Hubs, through which a range of targeted initiatives are being implemented to support community physical, mental and social wellbeing.
Playford Wellbeing Hub
The Playford Wellbeing Hub, established in December 2020, is delivering a range of programs and initiatives supporting physical, social and mental health and wellbeing in the community. The initiatives centre on supporting children, young people, and their families to stay socially connected and active, with a focus on wellbeing through food and physical activity.
Programs are offered at the John McVeity Centre and The Precinct in Smithfield Plains.
To date the Playford Wellbeing Hub has delivered activities including come and try sports, healthy eating through gardening and cooking programs, walking groups, family open days, playgroups for preschool children, and art projects.
Naracoorte Lucindale Wellbeing Program
The Naracoorte Lucindale Wellbeing Program is the second Wellbeing Hub pilot site, established in March 2021.

The initiatives and programs have a particular focus on children, young people and families, people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities and older people.
Activities delivered include an eight week wellbeing program for older adults, school holiday programs at the Naracoorte Sports Centre, a range of come and try activities, family friendly community events and art projects.
